My favorite things to cook
vegetables - eggplant, squash, spinach, potatoes, and fish. I like to make sauces and I especially like cooking with wine. My favorite herbs are Rosemary and Basil and I love recipes that use those herbs. Favorite spices; curry, cayenne. I also make a lot of beef and pork tenderloin. I believe any good dish begins with onion, and most with garlic. I make a mean beurre blanc.
My cooking triumphs
Wine reduction, beurre blanc, lemon rosemary scallops. I can take a Tony's pizza and make it into something you thought came from a gourmet pizzaeria.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make spinach mushroom ravioli using spring roll wrappers because I couln't find any eggroll or ravioli wrappers in my local grocery. It was a horrible disaster.
